RODBOROUGH School in Milford hosted the annual Carnegie Waverley Federation Inter-School book quiz.

Four secondary schools – Rodborough, Farncombe’s Broadwater , Glebelands, from Cranleigh and Haslemere’s Woolmer Hill – competed for the title of Carnegie champion.

It was a hard fought competition with the readers from Broadwater coming out victorious and Rodborough placed second. Rodborough headteacher Matthew Armstrong-Harris presented the cup to the winning team.

After the event, Mrs Armstrong-Harris, the learning resource centre manager, said: “It has been a delight to meet and discuss books with such an enthusiastic group of students.

“The annual quiz is always a fantastic event and a fantastic opportunity to share a passion for reading.

The students are already talking about their strategy for next year’s competition.”

The Carnegie Medal is awarded to outstanding children’s books written in the last 12 months and is celebrating its 75th year this year.

Rodborough pupils have been shadowing the judging process for months and were expected to read and review a number of books shortlisted for the award.

The books were then discussed and debated about in weekly meeting in the Rodborough Learning Resource Centre.
